Are you an avid J-Dater?
If so, you'll relate to Meredith Fineman (C'09, SDT, Penn Democrats) who started a humorous JDating blog called Fifty First (J)Dates. On the site, Meredith writes about both her awkward first encounters with men she's met on the site (she's at #11 and counting) as well as adds funny advice and musings about the process in general.
"I spent the past year living and working for Young & Rubicam in Buenos Aires, Argentina. When I moved home to DC I wanted to meet new people so I joined JDate. Then the stories/anecdotes were so hilarious I couldn't help but write about it."Some of Meredith's fun posts:
- How to prepare for a first J-Date
- I Don’t Know How to Come Up with a Witty Title for How Bad This Date Was
- There is a Fine, Fine Line Between Confidence and Douche-baggery. (Well, not in this case.)
Fifty First (J)Dates is also featured on Huffington Post, Jewcy, and Jewlicious, as well as other blogs. Email Meredith with your stories at firstname.lastname@example.org

...This reminds me of another (Jewish) Penn alum who did something like this back in 1998, but it was in the format of a film called 20 Dates: A documentary type film about the dates Myles Berkowitz (C'81, W'82) had gone on as he tried to find out how to find love in Los Angeles.
